In 'The Tao of Health' Conny Coppen underlines the importance of balance, insight and growth. We can solve the crisis of our personal well-being and society with the holistic view of Taoism. Our organs form the connecting links between psychology, inspiration and the body. When they do not function properly, our life energy stagnates, the source of many physical and emotional complaints. A practical workbook that changes the quality of your life.
You discover the relationship of the different organs with the seasons and the associated elements and acupuncture points. With her extensive knowledge of naturopathy, acupuncture and Taoism, Conny Coppen gives plenty of examples from her personal life and from her practice.
'Based on Chinese medicine and the ideas of Taoism, the author describes the relationship of the organs with the five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal and water, which in turn correspond to the seasons. Disharmony, not following your true self, is often the cause of complaints. Practical exercises such as visualizations, tapping the meridians, indicated on clear schematic drawings, nutritional advice and other supportive measures can restore balance. Special attention is paid to the acupuncture points that you can massage - there are also exercises for children - and the 'wonder meridians', both set out in a clear diagram. The personal style in which own experiences and cases are described and the point-by-point summary of complaints and advice make the book suitable for both the interested layman and therapists working in all kinds of disciplines. The glossary includes a detailed explanation. Sources and bibliography in the back.' - N.B.D. Biblion
